This isn't a problem that I ever saw with sarge on alpha; I had no trouble
getting IPs with DHCP.  By any chance do you have access to logs from the
DHCP server to show what traffic is being sent to and from the d-i client?

Would you be willing to test the latest etch installer to see if it resolves
your problem?  If this is a bug in the installer, that's where it would need
to be fixed anyway.
